The second workshop of the Neubauer Collegium’s ongoing interdisciplinary Ancient Trade project, which involves both economists and specialists in ancient texts and archaeology. Using a 4,000-year-old archive of documents from present-day Turkey, we are investigating the applicability to ancient trade of mathematical and computational methods employed by economists to study modern trade. This project builds on the strengths of the University of Chicago in both economics and ancient studies, focusing on the relationship between social institutions and economic behavior, past and present.
